    Abstract

    The paper presents a macro view of changes in the structure of the workforce of Scheduled Tribes in Andhra Pradesh its impact in the inclusive growth perspective. The analysis indicates that although there has been progress on many development indicators in the ST community in the state, they still lagged behind the ‘other’ social groups. Slow progress in expected change in structure of employment towards non-agriculture in general and stagnation among STs for a long time is a cause of concern. Moreover, landlessness had increased among STs. These facts are cause for policy concern in the state. The human capital base of the ST community is far behind. Similarly is the case of poverty levels and rate of reduction. Given the actual situation of these communities with respect to their development status, more focused intervention is needed to enhance the pace of development among these communities. The impact of development of these communities (ST), comprised of 8% the state population, on its aggregate level of development would be considerable. Apart, the backwardness of these communities indicates a violation of norms like equity, equality and social justice that ought to be followed in the development process in a welfare state, and of the rights of these communities to development equally on par with other communities.
